Had some leftover mashed potatoes in the fridge. Decided to use them to
disguise the pills and capsules that the dog has to take. It worked. I came up
with the idea of making mashed potato fudge like my mom used to do years ago.
She'd stir sugar into the leftover mashed potatoes, press them into a pan, put
in the fridge, and then cut them into squares. 
I was thinking of doing this, without the sugar, and rolling them into balls
with the medication in the middle.
How long will these keep in the refrigerator? Would they keep longer if I
didn't use milk when making them? Would instant mashed potatoes last longer?
I'd like to make as many of them up in advance as I can.

Rather than the spuds I'd be far more concerned over the medication
transforming once exposed to moisture... perhaps you need to discuss your
fercocktah idea with the vet.

I put my dog's medication in small balls of canned cat food. Dogs love canned cat
food.  I put each pill into a ball large enough to cover the pill.  He gobbles it
up, the vet said it was okay.  It's the easiest way of getting the pills into him.
He is currently taking three pills a day, and its too much of a battle to do it
any other way, 'cause his teeth are very sharp!

bandage on his left front paw (laser surgery for a bad cyst) for over ten days and
is currently asleep on the floor under the computer table, and P K the lady manx
who is asleep in the chair by the window.)

Pilling a dog?  Try hiding the pill in a slice of a hot dog or wrapping it in a
bit of liverwurst.  Works great.

I've heard that disguising it in peanut butter works well.  I've never
tried it though.

Probably would as long as your dog likes peanut butter.

I've been putting pills in liver sausage for 25 years. Never had 1 hidden
pill rejected by any of my dogs.

When my "baby" needed antibiotics, I pushed the capsules into mushroom
stems and had her jump for them. Of course, this is the same dog that
loves carrots, peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, grapes and bananas!

How long are we talking?? Days, weeks??
My old dog, Sam, took his pills wrapped in liverwurst.
